What ate my chicken?

Down by my coop under a tree was a small pile of feathers from my chicken. Then out in the field behind my coop I found a much larger pile of chicken feathers. Whatever it was didn't leave any parts of it just feathers. I'm thinking it was either a coyote, fox, or a hawk. Does anybody have any guesses?

I vote coyote or fox. A hawk typically eats in site (unless really large to be able to carry it off), but usually eats the head and entrails leaving the rest. There are a lot of feathers plucked from the belly around the kill.

My experience.
